KDE Applications 18.08 release schedule

Hi people,

So that you know this is the release schedule the release team agreed on.

Is there a way to force the use of a specific BT profile on a specific hardware/device?

I am using Leap 15 with KDE 5.12.5, Frameworks 5.45.0 and QT 5.9.4.

BT fails with me since years to pair correctly with BT audio devices provided
they have also a phone hands free function.
In this case, even selecting manually in the settings the right protocol
(A2DP), since the system perceives the microphone, it always starts the device
with HFP.

Since I do not use handsfree on my notebook, is there a way to force(!) the
A2DP protocol on the headset and on the BT box? Maybe with a "read only"
association of the profile for that given hardware?

Lost behavior between KDE 4.1.3.1 and 5.5.5

I don't upgrade till a version is out of support since upgrades never work
and I have to do a wipe and load and that's an insane amount of work for
me. I've been using Kbuntu LTS 14.04 and loving it with KDE 4.1.3.1 for
years now. I am in the process of taking several older computers that were
given to me and putting Linux on them as well as installing Linux for a
couple relatives and friends. I grabbed Kbuntu LTS 16.04 and slapped it on
the first machine. Ugg what a mess.

The install went quite smoothly on an old Emachine. It has 2 gigs of RAM
but KInfo only showing 1.5.

Adding Kirigami Gallery to kde-sdk

Hi all,
in the kirigami framework repo, there is a little gallery application which
outgrew the point of being a small example.
It's now becoming a tutorial app: on each page an example and documentation on
how to use a particular component and when with links on the relevant source
code and HIG page about such component (if available) becoming a developing
aide while writing a Kirigami application.

Also, since it's planned to add more graphics and heavy media files, makes it
not particularly ideal to still use the framework repository.
If no objections, it will be moved as a standalone

Konqueror 5.0.97 issues

[Konqueror 5.0.97 on Fedora 28 updated just this morning]

Because of a disk crash I had to replace my /dev/sda which previously had
Fedora 25 on it. Fortunately I keep /home on /dev/sdb so I installed Fedora 28
on a new /dev/sda and all appears to go well. Except for Konqueror in 3
annoying ways:

1. I can't open more than one instance from the K Menu or the Quick Launcher
anymore.

Using either of those just opens the one already-open Konqueror, even across
Desktops.

craft not finding installed utilities

For example, I know craft has grep and ninja installed, if nothing else
by looking at the output of "craft --print-installed" but invoking
either of them on the command line fails with a "the term is not
recognized..." error. I'm pretty sure things were working fine the
last time I did anything a few weeks ago. Today I tried "craft
kmymoney" and it upgraded numerous packages, and then failed on one,
claiming it couldn't find Ninja.

Has something changed recently requiring some change to my
configuration?

Is there a way to set digitalclock plasmoid font size?

Devs,

I have been trying to find a way to reduce the digital clock plasmoid font
size. In:

/usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.digitalclock/contents/ui/DigitalClock.qml

I have tried changing:

font.pixelSize: 1024

to

font.pixelSize: 512

hoping to 1/2 the font size, but no joy.

Binary Factory & Windows CI builds temporarily offline

Hi everyone,

Due to some issues with MSVC we are currently encountering, the Binary
Factory is currently unable to successfully complete Windows builds.
As part of diagnosing these, reinstallation of MSVC has been required,
which has required Windows CI builds to be disabled temporarily.

It is likely that CI coverage will be restored sometime in the next 24
hours, however Binary Factory capability will take longer.

Unfortunately due to the nature of these failures it is possible we
will not be able to restore full service until Microsoft releases the
3rd preview release of Visual Studio 15.

Removing code from kdeexamples dir

From what I can see, the kdeexamples repo is mostly unmaintained (the
last useful commit dates back to 2014), the master branch only
contains KDE 4 code and the frameworks-scratch branch is just as
ancient.

I propose the following:
1. Create a branch (or tag) called master-unmaintained, master-old or
whatever you prefer, pointing to the current HEAD
2. Obliterate everything from the repo, leaving only a
README.unmaintained file, reading:

Version Error while building KDE frameworks and Qt5

Hello Everyone.
For building Elisa from kdesrc-build, I am building the dependencies from
here:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source/Install_the_dependencies" title="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source/Install_the_dependencies">https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source/Instal...</a>

But this is installing version 5.9.5 for Qt and version 5.44 for all kde
frameworks. Elisa requires versions 5.10.0 and 5.45 respectively. How can I
install these versions? I would be really grateful if someone can help me
out since I have spent a lot of time building the dependencies but its
resulting in errors while building elisa.

Hello, I am Bhavesh(username:bp_) from India and a newbie to open source. I
am a college student and really want to contribute. Mainly, I program in
C++ and I am comfortable with the basics as well as some data structures. I

Given recent events and decisions (

it important to bring more to the table.

Martin’s decision is an unfortunate one. Martin has been with KDE through
thick-and -hin and has earned the respect and love from many members in the
community. He has also earned my respect.

I can’t help but think that the VDG is a tremendously influential group
within KDE. I personally take this as a huge responsibility and a call to
do even better in our approach.

Installing qml caches

Hi all,

It would be nice to install .qmlc files in addition to .qml files to
reduce start-up time of applications.
They are generated with qmlcachegen. For Qt 5.11:
qmlcachegen -o example.qmlc qxample.qml

Currently qml files are usually installed the following way:
install(DIRECTORY qml/ DESTINATION ${KDE_INSTALL_QMLDIR}/org/kde/kcm)

So this could be changed to something like
ecm_install_qml(qml org/kde/kcm)

I wonder whether someone already working on this or want to implement
such a function?
If not, I'll try to do it myself.

Cheers,
Alexander.

reposition window partly outside screen (kwin related)

I want my application to show the Qt virtual keyboard when it's running on a touchscreen.
To avoid that the virtual keyboard covers the input field, I'd like to move the whole
application window upwards so that the input field is always visible above the VKB, and move the window
back downwards when the keyboard hides.

However kwin seems to restrict the y-coordinate to only positive values.
Using xfwm4 this is possible (except when the window is fullscreen or maximized).

How can this be solved (best in a way which works regardless of the window manager) ?

Kopete 18.04 lacks of notification settings

It may sounds like a silly question, but can someone confirm there's no
Notification by default on the last version of Kopete?

I'm using it on Kubuntu with staging repos enabled, version 1.13.0
(4:18.04.1-0ubuntu1~ubuntu18.04~ppa1), which relies on Qt5. So, going into
Settings menù, "configure notifications" (translated from italian), nothing
shows up there. I've checked the previous version (which relies on Qt4) and
that panel is full of entries.

I don't know if it's a bug, or the devs are still porting everything out on
Qt5.

How to use the "opengl" qt rendering backend instead of "raster"?

Hi,

I am using KDE on an AMD Kaveri based system featuring a 4k display.
Quite a few operations/animations feel rather slow on that machine
(e.g. the semi-transparent selection window on the plasma desktop, or
the slide-animation in kicker).
So animations inside windows (drawn by QT) are slow, the compositor
related animations are fluent and fine.

Looking at the profiles it all boils down to QT using the "raster"
backend. I see tons of cycles spent inside functions like
qt_memfill32, comp_func_solid_SourceOver_sse2 and the likes.

Dolphin bug, help needed

Hello,
I'm trying to fix a bug in Dolphin. It basically doesn't show any
information in columns like Artist, Image size etc. in details view.

After finding what is missing I wanted to see an example way to retrieve
that metadata. I decided to look at the code of Information Panel which
works correctly. After seeking some help in the IRC channel I decided to
dive into the code. Information Panel uses Baloo widgets to fill that
information. KFileMetada is meant to be used as a fallback compile time
option. And I was told thay KFileMetadata has been deprecated.

2 - If, for any reason, the VPN goes down all outgoing connections are automatically dropped/rejected/whatever. That is, I would like to connect to the Internet only if connected to the VPN (only OpenVPN packets should go out if still not connected to the VPN).

weird KDE printing Problem

Hello Mailinglist!

I wrote this topic already to another mailinglist and asked some of my
freinds. But no one seems to have the faintest idea what could cause
this problem or how to track it down. So maybe someone of you can help?

Distribution: openSuSE 42.3

I have 2 HP Color Laserjets attached to the LAN.

Queries regarding Akademy 2018

Hello,

I am a GSoC 2018 student at KDE and have applied for the developer account.

I want to attend Akademy at Vienna, Austria this year and have submitted a
travel reimbursement request for the same.

1. Do I need to fill any RSVP form to let KDE know that I am willing to
attend Akademy 2018 if my travel request is approved?

2. It says the deadline for the second round of travel request is May 31,
so do I need to wait for May 31 in order to know the approved status of my
request?

3.

Kde translation.

How are translations handled as far distribution goes?

KAuth helper trouble

Hi kde-devel,

I'm trying to convert my package manager frontend to KAuth so it doesn't have to be run under kdesu but my helper doesn't seem to be behaving and I'm having trouble debugging it.

Can a GSoC 2018 student attend Akademy 2018?

Hello all,

I am a GSoC 2018 student under KDE Community and I want to attend Akademy
2018 to be held in Vienna, Austria from 11-17 August. I have checked the
webpage and found that the last date for proposal has been passed away
(March 12).

Is it still possible to attend Akademy during GSoC period (final mentor
evaluation phase) with travel reimbursement?

Thanks and Regards,
Dileep

Top of windows too tall and apparently non-adjustable in kde 5.

Hello everyone:

I've been struggling to configure the look of window decorations, specifically
the top, on Debian 9/Kde 5.28.0 (current stable) the way I had them on Debian
7/Kde 4.8.4. Unfortunately Kde 5 is so different that I can't figure out what
combination of theme, style, color, etc... I need to match what I had.

Specifically, I would like the height of the frame at the top of the windows
to be less tall, but I can't find any way to do this. I can also not get the
font size to change.
